This place is an absolute must-see; a UNESCO World Heritage Site!
It's a pity most tour companies don't bring more people here; this was a highlight for the history buff in me

Important place in Port Louis, a complex of buildings of the history connected with indentured labour staff coming from India, working on plantations. Historical and cultural context very interesting.

Not easy to find.Asked several people and they had no ideas.Finally arrived and it was very educational.The family learned about the history although you can access that on the internet.However if you want to know more you have to go to MGI institute,why not help those on the spot to do some researches etc.

Just completed the visit to the Aapravasi Ghat and realise how difficult the life was for our fore fathers who were sent to a remote place without even the basic amenities.
